What could possibly be a better way to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday than reading? Not only do we celebrate the legendary Dr. Seuss‘s birthday, but we are also celebrating National Read Across America, and your hometown libraries are ready! Born on March 2, 1904, Dr. Seuss would have marked his 109th birthday this year. Less known by his actual given name, Theodor Seuss Geisel, his 44 children’s books are natural classics in the genre which include such favorites as “The Cat in the Hat”, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”, "TheLorax", and “Green Eggs and Ham.” Celebrate any of Dr. Seuss’s wonderful tales of mischief and morality as we Read Across America today and give you the joy of reading and lifelong learning.
Poor Dick and Sally. It's cold and wet and they're stuck in the house with nothing to do . . . until a giant cat in a hat shows up, transforming the dull day into a madcap adventure and almost wrecking the place in the process! Written by Dr. Seuss in 1957 in response to the concern to growing illiteracy among children, The Cat in the Hat changed the way our children learn how to read. This one is a cartoon classic.Add a comment

This November, library patrons brought cans, bags, and boxes of non-perishable food items to their hometown Pioneer Library. which were donated to various organizations, such as Blanchard Lion Cubs, Salvation Army of Norman, Shawnee Rescue Mission, and many others. For every item donated, Pioneer Library System removed $1 off of the existing library fines on patrons' accounts.
This year, the entire Pioneer Library System gathered approximately 3.3 tons of un-opened food items from charitable patrons.
That weighs as much as a Euoplocephalus, which is a dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous period! If you would like to learn more about this extinct creature, please feel free to explore our Encyclopedia Britannica database here.Add a comment
